So, what is matières grasse de palme?

"Matières grasses de palme" is a type of fat derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree. This ingredient is commonly used in food production due to its high melting point and ability to remain solid at room temperature, making it useful for creating creamy textures in products such as chocolate, margarine, and baked goods. However, concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of oil palm cultivation, as well as the high level of saturated fat present in this ingredient. As a result, many food manufacturers have begun to seek out alternative, more sustainable sources of fat.
